Little People ~ Igniting Imaginations During Playtime
Fisher-Price’s Little People are a classic toy that are near and dear to many parents’ hearts (including my own). The brand recently came out with five brand-new characters, Eddie, Mia, Sofie, Tessa and Koby – each with their own characteristics. These are ideal for little ones who like to use their imagination during playtime. My 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son are play buddies and love to create their own stories. It’s funny how a tiny toy and a couple of household objects can create hours of fun!
My son likes to use the Little People as passengers in his car, while my daughter lays them down on her pillow and places mini blankets on each one as they “nap.” I love how travel-friendly these toys and how they can instantly ignite an imagination regardless of where your child is.
My 4-year-old daughter’s latest:
“One upon a time, there was a little girl and a little boy and their friends. One went to big school and the other one went to little school. It was good because the little school was next to the big school, so they could play during recess. They liked each other very much. After school they went on an adventure in a police car (!) and visited the park. At the park they played with toys and sand and jumped on the slide.”
The insert of the exclamation point is mine of course and the story goes on and on and on, but I’ll leave it as is so you can use your own imagination. Basically, the sky’s the limit. I don’t know what it is about those cubby cheeked miniature sized toys, but they have a huge amount of appeal.
